Not a Good Start

posted by on August 18 at 19:54 PM

I has planned to write a deep, in-depth slog post analyzing the Mariners-White Sox game tonight, but, frankly, it comes down to this reverse paraphrase of Yogi Berra: bad pitching loses to good hitting, and vice-versa. The M’s had bad pitching, and bad hitting, and so… 13-5.

Will try to have something deeper to say about the game Wednesday afternoon, which I will attend live and in person. But will not live-slog, due to the fact that lugging my laptop all over town just ain’t gonna happen.

And on another topic, let me just point out that the brother’s idea of satellite hempfests mirrors my cogent advice for Critical Mass. Perhaps combine the two? Let everyone get high as shit all over town, then ride downtown to Pike Market, while eating handfuls of Doritos handed out by the homeless.

The problem with hempfest and CM, is that the most ardent supporters of each do not realize how stupid they look to the vast majority of people. People who vote, write letters, and otherwise affect policy.

At least hempfest is out of the way and pretty harmless to those who don't care. CM however makes me want to oppose bicycle infrastructure. Not to mention that it would be tempting, given the right of away, to simply plow into some of the fuckers. Douchebaggery needs to be more painful.

For the record I am generally in favor of both weed and biking.

Off topic: I am discouraged that I have not yet found the source of the idea that Seattle's mixed geography caused the classes and races to mix more than other cities, preventing the formation of hard-core slums and ghettos. I'll find it though. If I don't, I'm going to take credit for it.

The Mariners are on a vision quest.

Mere hits and runs and eras are the stuff of Little League.

What's ground breaking about the M's is their flirting -- oh so gently -- with 30 Games Behind.

That's right, for a while the Washington Nationals were challenging their lockbox on GB -- but no longer.

We're right at 30.

Can we make 40.

I believe the record is 58 in 1998...but I'm still researching...one can hope...one can pray...

Yes you have a fucked up snout, but you still root for the truffle.

It's the numerology, stupid.

When M's lose 13-5 and bring Washburn's record to 5-13, you have to realize the team's in the rip of forces beyond human control.

I'm sure OKC could use some more pro-sports franchises. Get this millionaire welfare-crap outta here.
